REL’s Serie HT is designed specifically to answer the challenge of creating affordably priced, exceptionally dynamic, pure home theater powered subwoofers.
When there is simply neither the space nor the need for all the output of a larger model, HT/1003 applies the same approach as its impressive stable mate, the HT/1205, and scales it down by just a little. A 10” high-powered, long throw driver and 300W means it has plenty of power on demand. This unit is intended primarily for high powered home theater applications, immersive gaming set-ups, and pairs nicely with active powered loudspeakers.
For REL owners already enjoying Reference, Serie S, and T/i subwoofers, the HT/1003 is designed to supplement their system’s .1/LFE output to produce chest rumbling home theater special effects.
For total freedom, go wireless. The optional HT-Air is designed to leave old fashioned Bluetooth-based systems in the dust, delivery latency in the 16-20 millisecond range. This permits owners to place their HT/1003 where it works best – without resorting to unsightly cables – all while retaining REL’s category-leading super-fast wireless.
HT/1003 delivers a tough, honest, purpose-built appearance designed to communicate its sole mission – extremely high output home theater at bargain pricing. The cabinet’s width is minimized, which reduces visual mass, while depth is maximized to produce the deepest bass. Tough, high-grade, horizontally oriented line-grained composite wraps the entire cabinet and is easily handled, easily cleaned. The top surface is beautifully finished in 5 coats of hand-rubbed lacquer, creating the visual appeal REL has come to be known for.
REL’s driver prowess is on full display with the HT/1003 – a modern 10” CarbonGlas™ (250mm) driver that is both lightweight and extremely stiff. HT/1003 uses tough, stiff carbon fiber over 60% of the driven surface, backed by lightweight glassfiber. The 10” CarbonGlas driver sets a new standard for affordable, high performance theater-specific drivers.
Accomplishing the single-minded goal of exceedingly high output for large-scale theater applications requires a special amplifier. REL’s NextGen5 Class D amplifier frees up interior space while running cool, which results in more cabinet volume. More cabinet volume translates into louder and deeper bass. 300 watts means the driver is never allowed to starve for power, ensuring a long running, reliable design. Within HT/1003’s input filter, REL designed in specific inverse filtering to permit their CarbonGlas driver to extend much deeper than traditional designs.
